Voices of America
The first part of our program has students investigate first person narratives from different cultures, communities, and experiences in America. Comprehensive reflection activities at the end of each lesson create group discussions on diversity and equality, and help students foster empathy for the experiences of others. All of the directions, content, and materials for the five Voices of America Narrative lessons are included within the box.
IN EACH OF FIVE LESSONS, STUDENTS WILL EXPLORE FIRSTHAND ACCOUNTS OF DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES IN AMERICA AND REFLECT ON THE IMPORTANCE OF EMPATHY AND EQUALITY.
